Up-cycled jeans

What are you most proud of? I love the appliques. I think they were actually iron on patches but I stitched them on so that they wouldn't be tempted to come off in the wash. =-) What advice would you give someone starting this project? When you think you have the length figured out that you want to cut the jeans to, add about half and inch. It's SO easy to make them TOO short. And you can always take up the extra in the hem, but you can't add anything once it's cut!
